Our Manifesto

These five beliefs form the foundation of our culture. These are the promises we make to ourselves and you.

Simplicity: We believe in making things easy.

Due to the threat of fines, legal action or reputational damage, data protection demands attention. But people avoid it because it is a dynamic and complex subject. We pride ourselves on our ability to demystify the topic, delivering concise, clear, and actionable insight to help you navigate challenges with calm confidence.

Fairness: We believe in doing the right thing.

If personal data is power, that power comes with responsibility. We all must understand our legal, ethical, and moral obligations when using personal data. Rather than inhibiting success and innovation, our balanced and expert viewpoint can help shield your organisation from malicious or negligent activities and enable you to turn trust into a competitive advantage.

Perseverance: We believe in going the distance.

We operate at the forefront of a rapidly evolving ecosystem of legal, moral, ethical, and social considerations. To ensure we always give you the right advice and guidance, we remain up to date with the latest trends and changes in data protection legislation. We are also diligent in our scrutiny and analysis to ensure we completely understand your organisation’s needs.

Relevance: We believe in tailoring our approach.

Harnessing our intelligence and appropriate technology, we go deep, getting to know your organisation inside out. Each client, context, and challenge is unique and demands a bespoke and considered solution. We are flexible and responsive, adapting our approach, processes and thinking to ensure our advice is relevant and appropriate to your specific situation.

Camaraderie: We believe in building positive relationships.

We are in this together. We have got your back. Collaboration excites us; we are personally and emotionally invested in our client relationships. We want you to feel we are part of your team. We strive to be an inspirational breath of fresh air and deliver our expertise with a smile. Above all, we are always here to help and support you.
